He also brings to life a bygone age with great detail that never weights down the page. Throw in a touch of humor and you have a great book!

Amazing Insight into a Little Known Age

Aside from academics, I suspect there are few of us who know what life was like in the 9th Century. Corwnwell has done a great job of opening up this world to us. If nothing else, I came away with a deeper understanding and appreciation for life in England at a much earlier time. People were both more civilized than I thought, and even more uncivil than I expected. This lens of history also made me appreciate much more the world we live in today.

    A good, fast read.

    Cornwell has a knack for weaving historical fact and fictional characters. 'Sword Song' is an interesting study of life and wars in the late first millinium.

    more from this reviewer

    Sword Song

    Formulaic- If you like Cornwell's style this is enjoyable but he sticks to his formula and it does seem to get old after a couple books.
